While we were in Anniston Alabama we stayed at the Anniston KOA (Kampgrounds of America) for four nights. As I mentioned before, many KOAs have minimal amenities and are located close to the interstate, which makes them good stops for people who need to move on down the road.
The Anniston KOA was one of these kinds of campgrounds. It had long, pull-through sites close together. All of the sites, except the tent sites, had full hook-ups. The KOA was clean and well-cared for. There was a small laundry, a book exchange, horseshoes, corn hole, a nice picnic pavilion and a playground. The campground was divided into two sections with long term campers in one section, and shorter term campers in another. Most of the people who stayed in the shorter term area arrived in the evening and departed first thing the next morning.
The best thing about the Anniston KOA for us was the strong wifi. Lots of private campgrounds say they have wifi, but it is too slow or spotty to be any good. The Anniston KOA had the best wifi of anyplace we have ever stayed. It would slow down a little when there were more people using it, but most of the time we couldn’t tell a difference in speed between the KOA’s internet and our hotspots. This was especially important because we stayed there during the week we had run out of gigabytes and needed another internet connection.
The Anniston KOA was a good place to stay for a little while. It was convenient, clean, and close to the things we wanted to see in the area. We especially appreciated the strong wifi. If we are traveling through the area, we would definitely stay there again.
